Santa Barbara Castle

Those who want to enrich their vacation with sightseeing trips are recommended to start with Alicante. Santa Barbara Castle is located in the very center of the city, on the sea shore. The castle offers wonderful views of the midwinter sea, the city of Alicante and the beautiful mountain ranges. Santa Barbara Castle in the Middle Ages was designed to protect the entire coast from invaders from the sea. The castle was built in the 9th century, during the Muslim rule of the Iberian Peninsula. Its first name in Arabic was Laqant Castle. After the Spanish took over the castle in the 13th century, it got the name Santa Barbara. In the castle, you will be able to touch a thousand years of history, and also enjoy drinks and meals in the cafe, with fantastic views from outdoor or indoor seats. You can reach the castle by car from the mainland side, or take the elevator from the sea side.
